Music by Elizabeth Ragsdale
Lyrics by John Ryland (adapted) and Elizabeth Ragsdale
O Lord, I would delight in Thee, And on Thy care depend;
To Thee in ev’ry trouble flee, My best, my ever Friend.
When all material streams are dried, Thy fullness is the same;
May I with this be satisfied, And glory in Thy name.
All good, where’er it may be found, Its source doth find in Thee;
I must have all things and abound, While God is God to me.
O that I had a stronger faith, To look within the veil,
To credit what my Saviour saith, Whose word can never fail.
Praise be to God, who invites delight.
In this place of grace I will reside.
Here I feel no longing.
With God I’m simply satisfied.
O He that has made my heaven secure, Will here all good provide;
While Christ is rich, can I be poor? What can I want beside?
O God, I cast my care on Thee; I triumph and adore;
Henceforth my great concern shall be To love and praise Thee more.
